Actor/director Jordan Peele, meanwhile, who worked with the stuntman on his breakout movie hit Get Out, wrote: "Thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of John Bernecker".

John Bernecker, a stuntman on AMC's "The Walking Dead." has died from injuries suffered on the show's set in Georgia. "We have been informed of a serious injury to a SAG-AFTRA member on the set of "The Walking Dead" and are investigating the situation", the union said in a statement.

On Wednesday, July the 12th, Bernecker fell off a 25-foot-high balcony while rehearsing a fight scene with an actor at the Raleigh Studio in Georgia.

In a short statement on The Walking Dead's official Twitter account, showrunners said they were deeply saddened by the loss of 33-year-old, adding: 'He will always be part of the TWD family'.

In a statement, the United States cable network behind The Walking Dead, AMC, said: "John Bernecker's family has decided that he will be removed from life support, following organ donation".

The AMC network confirmed "John Bernecker's family has decided that he will be removed from life support following organ donation".

An assistant director told police the stuntman missed a safety cushion "by inches" and tried to break his fall by grabbing a railing after he slipped, celebrity news website TMZ reported. It will also feature the TV series' 100 episode that will be helmed by executive producer Greg Nicotero who consistently directed all the season premiere since season 4.

Bernecker's work can be seen in films such as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Logan, and the forthcoming Black Panther.

"The family of John Bernecker is heartbroken to confirm that John has passed away from injuries sustained earlier this week", the statement said. "Please send prayers to his family and friends".
